There is an abundant source of energy in the form of sunlight beaming down upon your rooftop every day. It can be used as a clean, cheap, and reliable energy source. Solar power can have an immediate benefit upon your home and family. Wouldn’t you like to save money and energy, and be less dependent upon your local utility company? Solar panels have an investment return within months, not years. Best of all, you can be in charge of your family’s energy source, not the utility company. It is very affordable to build your own solar panels, as opposed to buying them. As making ends meet becomes more of a challenge, instead of cutting back on expenses, do something that results in having more money on hand.

If you have some assets, consider converting them into cash, land or precious metal like gold or silver. You will need assets that are less effected by the crash of the currency and hyper inflation.

There is just no question that our destiny will include a majority of renewable energy. We could include here a big, long list of renewable and hydropower technologies that we can utilize. But the important thing to remember is that all of us are going to have to find our way with products that suit us and our lifestyle. The desert does not have the same needs and resources as the beach. Or the deep south with its great heat. The north with its terribly severe winters. Not a great deal of similarity between the needs of those places.

The first is wind energy. Today windmills are used in homes to run small generators. Using windmills is not a new concept. Windmills were used extensively in the past century. They were primarily used to mill grain. Making flour from grain was hard work and using the power of the wind was an economical way to complete this task. Another use of the windmill was to pump out water from large creeks or lakes to gain land. One country which frequently used this technique was the Netherlands. Acres of land were gained this way and today homeowners still benefit from this land.

The fact is that you can come off the grid and you can even sell your surplus, home-made electricity back to the grid. This is not likely to make you a lot of money, but it is a lovely feeling after only paying out for decades. However, the savings of life off the grid do not end there. There are ecological savings and the saving of human life too.

The sun warming areas of the planet differently causes air masses to move as wind. And it’s the sun’s energy that evaporates the water that eventually falls as rain the fill the rivers and streams from which we harness hydropower.

One of the reasons solar energy was not used in the past was it could not be stored and used later. Modern technology has made many strides in storing and using renewable energy. In today’s world, batteries to store solar or wind generated energy are much more efficient.

Short and sweet, get this phrase into your subconscious. With a little repetition you can build up a mindset habit that your body won’t be able to argue with. It will be no time at all, and your actions will be reinforcing this simple “mantra”. Energy knows no bounds when you change your mind and see yourself glowing with good health and a positive attitude. This easy to use, low tech, get tough phrase will revive you when you’re feeling low.
